weekend sailtrip

weekend trip sailing in the Netherlands, sail the Waddensea

The weekend 's arrived...  let's go sailing to Terschelling, Vlieland, beaching on a sandbank in the Wadden Sea. On Friday night make your way to the boat, stay the night and next day leave early - or later - for a relaxing weekend on board. In consultation with the captain you choose a route or a destination. The IJsselmeer, right in the center of Holland and with harbour towns quite close to Schiphol Airport, is also a great sailing area for people from abroad with its beautiful and quaint harbor towns. And if the weather is less than wonderful, you can also choose an inland route across lakes and canals.

Shopping for food and drinks and preparing meals, you can outsource, but you can also sociably cook together. The kids will be having fun with each other and so the adults will have the chance to socialize as well.

Put on your wellys and scurry across the sand, like the plovers. Back on board and watch the water surround the ship once more. And when night falls it's really dark and you'll see countless stars. The waves lull you into a deep sleep. Waking up to the cries of the oystercathers. Time for a hearty breakfast!

Hoisting sails together and peacefully sailing back to the port and back home. Along the way, we happily do the chores on deck and see some seals. There's no hurry; make it last forever.
